STEPS has held meetings with Auckland City Mayor Len Brown this year. The Mayor has taken a close interest in Watercare plans for a Central Interceptor. STEPS and Watercare advised the Mayor that this project is a means of reducing the ongoing flooding of Meola Creek, with resultant benefits for Waitemata Harbour and Te Tokaroa / Meola Reef.
The Letter from the Mayor indicates that Watercare has now revised the project dates so the dates are now four years earlier. STEPS is delighted by this news and thanks Mayor Brown and Watercare Services. STEPS will continue to support this project.
